I don't think it has. I would only use the inbuilt as a fill in flash anyway. Never taken any serious pics with a proper flash unit and I bought it (it arrives tomorrow) for the zoom.

Nice camera. Can't see any quality issues or the need for a hotshoe.

Ah... so you went for the Nikon P(eeping Tom)900. 83x zoom... best zoom there is. Be careful what you film...

:) Pretty phenomenal isn't it. If you are on facebook find a group called Photos.01 and you will see lots more. Yes I can now catch a nipple slip at 300 yards!
